Science does not rely on dogma, it relies on fact and verifiable repeatable experimentation. Religion relies on dogma, un-questionable principles that if you don't follow you are promised one form or another of puishment. Science is a constantly evolving that changes as new facts are discovered whereas religion is rooted in traditions that don't evolve. Of course science can be used for ill, usually by religious fanatics seeking political advantage, but science is REAL and does not preach about a chosen few destined for favor in some mythical playland!

It's not religion which is grave error - it's its abuse. Just as abuse of science leads to many wrongdoings, yet I can't see teams of people screaming "science is opium for masses!"

Power, control, greed and vengence..... brings war, torment...... belief in freedom and a set of rules we can live by ie...religion... while not much help to date at least provides some rules ... Sun, 14 Dec 2008 20:26:47 -0600 CST

All religion is grave error, it is the root of genocide, terrorism, homophobia, and sexism. Reliance on revealed truth leads to chauvinism and hatred of the other. Imaginary friends let one off the hook for one's own actions, God told me to hate you! Until the human race wakes up and learns that we are responsible for ourselves we are doomed to war, hatred and prejudice. God is an outdated concept used by centers of power to maintain control over weaklings who refuse to take personal responsibility for their own actions.
